About the Bishopston Supper Club
I’ve always enjoyed cooking for others and entertaining guests at home, in my own relaxed and informal way. For me, food is a great way to communicate and express oneself. After starting a ‘Come dine with me’ style supper club where the hosting was shared between the members of the group, I decided I wanted to host more dinners myself. The guests would then not have to reciprocate but contribute a suggested donation towards the cost of ingredients (£30 per person is recommended for 5-7 courses, which is great value compared to a restaurant, especially when you bring your own drinks). I aim to use seasonal, locally & ethically sourced produce to create homely, simple classics with a pinch of my own personality thrown in. Everything (as much as possible) is homemade, including the bread, and some produce is even homegrown. It is a refreshing change from working in a professional kitchen (I’ve been a professional chef for 17 years) and I love every minute. My guests all sit together so it’s very informal and friendly, great for meeting new people. Guests bring their own drinks, an open mind, and leave their donation in cash in envelopes which I provide at the end of the meal. There is no dress code. Those who are booked in will receive an email a few days before the event containing details such as the address and menu. My style of cooking is rustic and flavourful, mainly classic British & French inspired cuisine. The events are run at a leisurely pace, I usually only do one sitting. I do all the cooking and serving myself, I have an assistant on hand on the day to help with washing up etc. Please note my events are an alternative dining experience, I don’t put on entertainment or guide social interaction. Please prepare to be sociable and entertain yourselves while I feed you delicious food!
Relax and enjoy!
